Cape Town – The final Mining Charter will be gazetted in March this year and will be reflective of the views of stakeholders, Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane said on Monday in his opening address at the 2017 Mining Indaba.

“The revised Mining Charter [is] the regulatory tool governing transformation in the sector, [and] we have consulted extensively with stakeholders,” Zwane said.

“The final Mining Charter will be reflective of the views of stakeholders, in the interests of South Africa and provide for investor certainty. We call upon investors to come to South Africa and engage us frankly as we move towards transformation of our economy. We will continue to have an open door policy.”
